Consular Services

Consular Assistance

Consular assistance is available to Australian citizens living in and travelling through Pakistan and is provided by the Australian High Commission Islamabad, Pakistan.

While we will do what we can to help Australians in difficulty overseas, there are legal and practical limits to what help we may be able to provide.  The Consular Services Charter outlines the consular assistance that may and may not be provided to Australians overseas.

The Consular Services Section is open between 0830-1600 hours Monday to Thursday and 0830-1200 on Friday (excluding Australian High Commission Islamabad Public Holidays 2023). If you require consular assistance, please contact us on +92 51 835 5500 option:2 during these hours.

For consular emergencies outside of these hours please call the Consular Emergency Centre in Canberra on +92 51 835 5500 option:2 (from within Pakistan), +61 2 6261 3305 from anywhere in the world or if you are in Australia, you can contact our 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre (CEC) in Canberra 1300 555 135.

The Consular Services Section does not accept or process applications for visas for entry to Australia, or applications for Australian citizenship. Refer to the Visas and Citizenship page for further information about these services.
